Taking a look back, several years ago the Whitfield community embraced one of the most thoughtful and comprehensive strategic plans I have ever had the pleasure of being a part of. The plan focused on serving students and parents, empowering teachers and staff, and creating a sustainable Whitfield.
From there, Head of School John Delautre and his team implemented, adjusted, and built upon the vision. They have stayed true to the plan's goals and broad strategic priorities, and have used creativity and innovation as they put it into practice.
The plan ultimately resulted in a set of priorities that led us to Achieving the Vision: The Campaign for Whitfield. And, while the school’s leadership raised resources to set the final priorities of the strategic plan into motion, the school continued to evolve and advance its mission. Faculty continued to review and refine curriculum and help students to interpret, understand, and embrace the Habits of Mind and Heart; our extremely dedicated and talented faculty continued to steadily walk with our students on their journeys to success. Indeed, it is our teachers, staff and students who make achieving our vision a joy and honor to witness!
I want to thank this entire Whitfield community for being such a huge part of our Campaign’s success to raise the resources necessary to implement our vision. Funds raised coupled with Whitfield’s outstanding teachers and staff, will ensure that our collective resources will go far in enhancing the lives and learning of our students.
We have achieved a remarkable and rather rare organizational "hat trick": vision, talent and resources. With all of your help and dedication to our school and students, we can push forward and realize the countless benefits of this great accomplishment. Thanks to all for your support of our school and students!
